Every effort is made to ensure that your new
FuelCel tank is leak free. Although every precaution is taken in the
manufacturing of your new FuelCel, in-house testing cannot re-produce
the dynamic conditions of the installation on the motorcycle. Under
certain conditions of vibration, heat and gasoline, a minute pinhole
can develop in rare cases that escape our detection.
Please note that this Lifetime Warranty covers the
repair of the tank and not the cost of
painting should a leak occur after painting. To avoid this potential
problem it is highly recommended to do the following procedures first.

CONFIRMING THE TANK PRIOR TO PAINTING. The outer
surface of the tank is sprayed with a thick coating of catalyzed
polyester primer. THIS BUFF TAN COLOR MUST NOT BE SANDED THROUGH.
Underneath this tan layer is a white epoxy primer, DO NOT sand through
this white primer as the structural matrix is just below it. Sanding
through the white primer can cause leaks to occur, especially around
the bottom edges of the tank.
If your tank has a place for your pump to bolt on
I.E. 1098, GSXR, 749-999, etc DO NOT PAINT OR PRIMER THE WHITE PRIMER
AREAS. This can cause the pump not to seal. These areas are precision
molded within thousands of an inch and must be maintained as is, also
DO NOT SCRATCH these surfaces.
Install all necessary plumbing and hardware before
mounting on the bike, then fuel it to capacity and run at least half of
it through by running the engine BEFORE PAINTING THE TANK.
Following the above procedure first will greatly
help avoid any costly re-painting repair.
All tanks come with a set of instructions, please
read them in full to avoid costly mistakes.
